Season six "Top Chef" winner Michael Voltaggio was at the Orange County Fair on Thursday, educating the crowd on the art of food presentation.

Voltaggio was a fan favorite on the reality show. He competed against his brother and won during the finale with a four-course menu that included dashi-glazed rockfish, fennel-scented squab breast and butternut squash brûlée.

He recently started his own restaurant, Ink, on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles.

Voltaggio is one of a number of chefs showing off their culinary chops at this year's fair.

"Top Chef Masters" star Rick Moonen will be serving sustainable seafood Aug. 11.
